DIY Valentine’s day decor

heart mobile

I’m excited to share this simple idea of ​​decoration for valentine’s day with you. It’s a very simple craft and a perfect activity to make with kids. The hearts are made with recycled plastic bottles, so it’s ecological and economical. I choose to make a mobile with the hearts but you can also create a garland or just hang them in the window.

Estoy emocionada de compartir con ustedes esta idea simple de decoración para el día de San Valentín. Es una manualidad muy simple y una actividad perfecta para hacer con niños. Los corazones están hechos con botellas de plástico recicladas, por lo que es ecológico y económico. Eliji hacer un móvil con los corazones, pero también puedes crear una guirnalda o simplemente colgarlos en la ventana.

Material que vas a necesitar para hacer tu decoration de San Valentin

  • Botellas de plastico
  • Tijeras
  • Plumon
  • Hilo
  • Aguja
  • Dos palillos

cut bottle

 Get some plastic bottles, any size. Clean them and cut the bottles in “slices” to have plastic rings.

Agarren botellas de cualquier tamaño. Cortan las botellas en “rebanadas” para tener anillos de plastico.

decorate with sharpie

Decorate the rings with permanent marker, I made flowers, hearts, lines, or write what you want …. use your imagination! I only used the red sharpie as it feels perfect for Valentine’s day, but again feel free to be creative and use any color you like.

Decora los anillos con marcador permanente, hice flores, corazones, líneas o escribas lo que quieras …. utiliza tu imaginación! Solo usé el sharpie rojo, ya que era perfecto para el día de San Valentín, pero nuevamente, se creativa y usar los colores que te gustan.

fold heart

Then fold rings twice (see photo) to form a heart shape!

Luego doblas los anillos dos veces (ver foto) para formar un corazón

plastic bottle hearts

 Do as many as many hearts as you want! Using different bottles size allow you to have different heart size too.

¡Haz tantos corazones como quieras! El uso de diferentes tamaños de botellas te permite tener diferentes tamaños de corazón.

attach hearts

 Pass a thread with a needle through the heart to hang them together, end with a node.

Pasas un hilo con una aguja a través de los corazónes para colgar los juntos, y terminan con un nudo.

Make hearts mobile

And voila, I suspended my hearts to dowels to create a mobile, but you can make a garland, or simply hang them on the window. Where would you like to hang them?

It’s a super easy DIY, perfect to make with kids. I love to see your creation, so don’t hesitate to share your make in comment!
